Good call on "The Hustler"! The Cincinatti Kid is not far off the list, the game is poker, not pool, Edward G Robinson is the Jackie Gleason character, Steve McQueen is the Paul Newman character.

Bullitt, good film, great actor "Steve McQueen" he also did a somewhat unknown western "Nevada Smith" always a favorite back in the day.

And speaking of Paul Newman, my number 10 is "The Sting" another great pairing of Paul Newman and Robert Redford.

One of the cool aspect's of American Film is the opportunity to view the "Dark Side" of life without experiencing it first hand.

The compelling cinematography and the desperate story lines demonstrated in the 50's and 60's makes all this animated 3D bullshit today a nauseating headache!

Just watched Caine Mutiny; it is an amazing movie, far better than it seems at first viewing. Amazing cast; had seen it dozens of times, but now own it; if not for Brando in Waterfront, Bogie would've won hands down for it...So all the critics say anyhow.
